Pizza Hut Original Stuffed Crust Pizza

Updated on August 3, 2016

Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pizza

SERVES 3 to 4 a nice helping

Crust: 3/4 cup of warm water ( 105 to 115 degrees)

1 1/4 tsp of yeast

1 tbs of sugar

2 1/4 cups of bread flour

1 1/2 tsp of salt

1 1/2 tsp of olive oil

SAUCE: 1 15 oz can of tomato sauce 1/4 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp of dried basil leaves

1/4 tsp of thyme

1/4 tsp of garlic powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp black pepper

1 bay leaf

dash of onion powder 1/2 tsp lemon juice

8 (1 oz) mozzarella string cheese sticks 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella

Toppings your choice of: pepperoni, onions, slices mushrooms, black olives, jalapenos, green peppers, pineapple chunks, Italian sausage, tomatoes, ham....

1st. Prepare the dough for crust. I suggest you prepare dough one day before baking the pizza. You get the best dough you will need to allow it to rise in your refrigerator overnight. This will produce a great commercial style crust.

Combine the warm water, sugar and yeast in a small bowl, stir until dissolved. Let sit for 5 minutes until it foams.

In a large bowl sift together the flour and salt, make a depression in the center and pour in the yeast mixture. Add oil. Slowly combine all ingredients into a ball..

Dust a clean flat surface with flour, knead the dough until smooth consistent texture. This should take ten minutes.Rub a light coating of oil on the dough, then put in tight container and a warm place to rise for 2 hrs or until double size.When double size punch down, put back in container and refrigerate overnight. You can use right away, but that procedure gives best results.

You can prepare sauce ahead of time too..Heat tomato sauce, lemon juice and spices. Simmer slowly for 30 to 60 minutes until desired thickness.

1 hr before using dough take out of refrigerator till room temp. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Roll out dough on floured surface until 18 in across. Put dough on greased pan or has a sprinkling of cornmeal on it. Poke the pizza several times with a for to prevent bubbling. Place a ring of cheese from end to end all the way around. Fold dough over cheese, press firmly.Brush top of folded dough with olive oil. Cover with sauce, spread toppings and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 12 to 16 min until crust turns dark brown and cheese has dark spots. Enjoy!! Pizza Hut at home:.) Your friends will be impressed!

      thank-you, i will try out the recipe. My only problem is that my oven only goes up to 250 degrees. What should i do in this instance? will it have a different outcome if i put it a 250 degrees for a longer period than 12 -16 mins?
